Seed Potato suppliers

Pete Smith asked 13 years ago

Hello Gerry, I’m new to Ireland and I’m looking for suppliers of Rooster seed potatoes, either online or local. Could you also recommend a good Irish salad potato. Thanks.

Most garden centres stock seed potatoes in spring. Irish Potato Marketing are a wholesaler of seed potatoes and  may be able to help.

‘Rooster’ is an Irish variety and like the generality of Irish-bred varieties it is floury, not waxy as salad varieties need to be. The early Irish variety is suitable if lifted before full maturity.
